Top Chef Meals founder, Paul Ghiron, was born in Manhattan and raised in Westchester County. While growing up he was actively involved in the family business Execu-Lunch Inc, one of Westchester’s first Corporate caterers. Paul earned a degree in Engineering Operations followed with an esteemed 7 years in the US Air Force flying fighter airplanes as well as working as a Program Manager of Procurement. Following this he worked 4 years as a Program Director of Development Programs at a systems and software defense contractor before joining the family business.
Once joining Execu-Lunch, he led the company through a 400% growth before his father retired. In 2010 Paul found himself heavily involved in the corporate catering world, employing numerous chefs and support staff as he worked as the President of The Crystal Spoon Corp.
One day, his father called him up frustrated by the lack of offerings for dinner that a person can be faced with and asked if he wouldn't mind bringing over dinner that night. It was during this conversation combined with his unique experiences working as a caterer, the idea of Top Chef Meals was born! Already deep rooted in the culinary world, Top Chef Meals would make customizable prepared meals for singles, couples and families that were too busy, unable or didn't want to cook all the time. The word spread quickly throughout the country about the quality, the taste and the choices they offer. With over 70 entrees and 300 side dish combinations, Top Chef Meals continues to revolutionize the meal delivery industry while maintaining their core family values.
